Reopening of Artificial Pitches

In line with the NI Executive’s Pathway to Recovery programme, and as part of a programme for the phased return of the delivery of services at its outdoor sports facilities, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has confirmed the reopening of its artificial football pitches across the district from Monday 6 July 2020. Initially, the pitches will be open only for use by affiliated clubs.

The reopening of the artificial pitches to the public follows on from the successful reopening of the tennis courts at the Bawnacre Centre, Irvinestown and the running track at both Fermanagh Lakeland Forum and Omagh Leisure Complex in the last few weeks. The bowling greens at Omagh Leisure Complex and at Celtic Park reopened for use by club members at both venues from Monday 29 June 2020.

The bowling greens at Omagh Leisure Complex and Celtic Park, Enniskillen will also reopen for use by club members from Monday 29 June 2020.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will continue to be guided by advice from the Northern Ireland Executive and the Public Health Agency with regard to the reopening of internal Leisure facilities.

The reopening of outdoor sports facilities to individuals and non-affiliated groups will be kept under review.

The Council’s grass pitches remain closed for essential maintenance.
